Dr. Umar Johnson will conduct the workshop. The USA-certified school psychologist will explore and discuss traditional and modern parenting and teaching ideas, practices, and models for rearing and educating today’s “globalized” child, said Reiph.
The “Parents and Teachers Workshop” is the first of over 15 workshops, panel discussions, and general sessions of the 14th annual St. Martin Book Fair, which actually runs from June 2 – 4, 2016, said Reiph. The complete book fair program is now online at
“A fund-raiser fee of $10 is charged for admission to this pre-St. Martin Book Fair activity with Dr. Umar Johnson, who returns to St. Martin by popular demand,” said Reiph.
Last February Dr. Johnson addressed over 600 people at USM as the keynote speaker for CLF’s 25th annual Black History Celebration Lecture. “The dynamic Dr. Johnson also holds degrees in education and political science and is a most requested speaker,” said Reiph. He has had speaking engagements throughout North America and in South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. Reiph is also president of Conscious Lyrics Foundation (CLF).
